Kasen "Talking"

This little video clip shows Kasen "talking" with me and Kai. We have such fun carrying on meaningless conversations with Kasen because he looks so completely enthused the whole time. Hope you find it as cute as we do.

Beach Bums

We're admittedly beach bums. In Michigan we always frequented Lake Michigan which is gorgeous and looks more like an ocean than a lake. Below is a picture of Lake Michigan for those friends who have yet to experience it.
However, we were not in Michigan this weekend and therefore these pictures are from Newport Beach, CA. This was Kasen's first trip to the beach. It was so much fun to introduce him to something we love so much. We went with some great friends and had a fun time. Afterward we all went to a delicious local Mexican restaurant.
Kasen in his beach outfit to keep him from getting too much sun even though he is a Southern California baby at the moment.
Sandy feet and about to sneeze. See his sneeze face?
The Steele boys
Playing Bocce Ball with our friends. This game is actually really fun. Andrea is way better than I expected and gave the guys a little competition!
Napping in mom's lap
First of many encounters with the sand.
Sandcastles with Daddy
They are so much fun to watch play together. Need I say more?
Lovin it!
I love this face!
I know he'll grow out of this soon, but I love this special cuddle time.

Springtime Fun

Last weekend we took a trip west to the beach and visited the Ojai, Santa Barbara, and Ventura area. It was great and we had gorgeous weather. This is my favorite picture from the trip! Kasen loves flying with Kai.
Gotta love this face
Story time
Super cute iPoo'd shirt--a gift from GramE Nini.
This week Kai had the afternoon off and we made a trip to Oak Glen to hike on the trails. We LOVE it when Kai gets an afternoon off! Kasen is facing forward in his Baby Bjorn now and loves the new world he's experiencing.
He was all smiles and was captivated by his surroundings. He saw birds, squirrels, ducks, and lots of green budding trees. It was fun to see the look of wonder in his eyes.
By the end of the hike we were tired.
We had another beautiful day!
This week, Kasen got a package in the mail from Papa and Grandma Steele. There were some very cute outfits inside and after washing them, this one looked like it would fit even though it's a 6-9 month outfit. We dressed him in it for church on Sabbath and he looked super cute--even made it on TV several times!
After church he fell asleep in his car seat still wearing his sunglasses-definitely picture worthy;-)
On Sabbath after church, we went hiking up Black Mountain in Idyllwild. This was Kasen's first trip hiking up a mountain. It was a little cooler weather, so we bundled him up and he did really good the whole time.
Uncle Brit loves hanging out with Kasen. He visits often just to hold his little nephew. Kasen has so much fun with him and spends a lot of time smiling at him while he makes silly faces and talks in funny voices. Soon he'll be able to laugh at his funny jokes like we all do. He's such a great uncle!
